    Manager of Driver Retention

    Birmingham, AL Full-Time

    We’re redefining the dining experience by building a world-class mobile ordering and delivery platform. Waitr/Bite Squad’s marketplace is helping small businesses grow and acquire new customers while also bringing concierge level convenience to thousands of consumers.  Waitr/Bite Squad’s growth has been off the charts and has no signs of slowing down. We are launching dozens of new markets around the US each quarter, and we are experiencing massive organic growth in our existing markets; this growth has warranted a singular focus on driver experience

    Waitr/Bite Squad is forming a new group that will own all strategy and most of the tactical efforts behind driver experience. This role will be a critical leader on that team and report to the Director of the group. This individual will oversee all aspects of the driver retention process and be involved in shaping and improving our entire labor retention strategy. And while the specific role will be focused on driver retention strategy/execution, the Driver Experience Group encapsulates the recruitment, hiring, training, and retention of our driver fleet; so, regular contributions to other parts of the group will be expected.

    At our scale, using both off-the-shelf and custom tools to automate/streamline these efforts is critical. Previous experience with large, hourly, remote workforces is a positive for this role. Strong analytical abilities, team management, strategic planning, and a history of execution will be critical to succeeding. The success of this person will be measured by improved retention of our fleet.
